Dane Gillebrand knew zilch about the blues and even less about philanthropy when he left South Africa for college in America at 18. That was 1993, when Gillebrand's life plan seemed so simple: He would graduate from film school at Florida State University, move to Hollywood and make great movies to entertain humanity. Of course, real life intervened. The lanky young man, whose South African accent is still as broad as Brooklynese, couldn't have known he'd be lonely at Florida State.
